    Why do you need it? You can get PSU's nowadays that are over 1000Watts and have triple 12V rails with about 40A but buying one won't neccesarily make your machine any better than if you stuck with your average Antec or whatever. Nobody needs to spend $500 on a PSU unless they're getting a server or are just really rich. I doubt greatly that you have a machine that would make use of a PSU like that so just save your cash and buy something more important.

    i've have been really digging my ocz game xstream 700 watt. the specs are good and more than enough power for my system.

    the only cons are, modular would be nice, but my case is big enough for cable management. and i wish the pci-e cables were longer to run them behind my hd cage and back to my gpu's. but i don't think the make em much longer on psu's anyway.

    my other choice was going to be

    I meant average in a good way. As in "what one would expect from a PSU" opposed to one that is above average (uber powerful and uber expensive) or one that is below average (200W piece of poo that comes with the case). I didn't mean it was bollocks.

    Enermax Galaxy 1000W. Look around for it ;) Though, it'd probably be cheaper to just get a pair of good 500w PSU's.

    Or maybe 72A on quad rails. But why $650? I can get one for $500 less here.

    I would go with that OCZ, its gotten some really good reviews and I mean 700 watts is more then you need, and its not insanely expensive either.

    No, it doesn't. You can't simply add rails like that. Besides, there's a whole lot more to a PSU than amperage on the +12V, particularly at the high end.

    Ya, but it still does have decent amps on all 4 rails. It is a very good psu especially for the price.

    Definitely, i'm just explaining why the PC P&C 1KW is better/more expensive.
